For more than 20 Thanksgivings SMUD employees volunteer to deliver for Meals on Wheels

Nearly 90 SMUD employees, along with their families—about 150 volunteers in all—will prepare, package and deliver 500 Thanksgiving Day meals for Sacramento area residents Thanksgiving morning. 

About 40 additional employees and their families will deliver the Meals on Wheels along with some holiday cheer to homebound seniors across the SMUD service territory.

SMUD Employees’ Association (SEA) volunteers begin preparing the meals assembly-line-style early Thanksgiving morning and then loading them into vehicles and delivering them to recipients. 

For 21 years now, SEA volunteers have enthusiastically prepared and delivered hearty Meals on Wheels to Sacramento County seniors who would not otherwise be able to have a holiday meal on Thanksgiving Day. 

Nearly 1,500 SMUD employees voluntarily participate in SEA, a non-profit organization that promotes fraternity and fellowship among members by conducting educational, social and recreational activities.
